    After a solid month of saying that Buster Posey wasn’t ready to play in the majors and that AAA stats mean nothing, the Giants seem to be changing their tune on their top prospect: Sabean personally scouted the Triple-A club last week, he said top prospect Buster Posey has really improved and the decision to…

  11. The Pirates place Charlie Morton on the DL

    May 28, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    This isn’t exactly Earth-shattering news, but I’ve beaten up on Charlie Morton lately, so I feel obligated to note that he was put on the disabled list today, suggesting that his issues have been the result of a physical problem as opposed to him simply, you know, sucking.  The official explanation is “shoulder fatigue.”  Which…

    We learned last week that Canada had begun an immigration crackdown and that some ballplayers had been detained at the border on their way to Toronto to face the Blue Jays.  Indeed, the union had warned player agents about it and asked that they get their clients’ papers in order.

  16. So who's on the trading block?

    May 28, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Jon Heyman runs down the big ticket trade targets this summer.  Heyman’s candidates: Cliff Lee.  Makes sense to me on some level but I’m a bit skeptical. The Mariners are a disappointment this year, but I don’t think they’re a team that thinks it’s tearing down and rebuilding. If they have a chance to sign…

  20. The Mets may be well-positioned at the deadline

    May 28, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    The thing I said earlier today about the Mets essentially being a .500 team refers to them in their current state.  Obviously if they make a few moves they can change the complexion of the race and remain in the thick of things no matter how high their current highs and how low their reasonably…
